National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges

The vital and important work of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) began in 1937 when a group of judges came together to improve the effectiveness of the nation's juvenile courts. Over the past 80 years, the NCJFCJ has sought to meaningfully improve practice and policy in juvenile and family courts.

The NCJFCJ is the oldest judicial membership organization in the nation and serves approximately 30,000 professionals in the juvenile and family court system, including judges, referees, commissioners and court masters. Every year, the NCJFCJ hosts more than 300 trainings, webinars and meetings - including two national conferences - where judicial officers and justice professionals learn innovative and leading-edge best practices in juvenile and family law. The NCJFCJ also offers premier national faculty engagement and collaborates with state and tribal court systems across the country. For those involved with juvenile, family and domestic violence cases, the NCJFCJ provides abundant resources, knowledge and educational opportunities to improve the lives of families and children seeking justice.
